Dr. Gorman is a clinical researcher for new devices in the field of plastic surgery. He was involved in the research which led to FDA certification of both Mentor and McGhan Silicone Gel Breast Implants. These studies at first were limited to reconstructive, revision and replacement, and other more complicated procedures. Later on Dr. Gorman was involved in studies of cosmetic breast augmentation patients as well.
These were all ten year follow-up studies. Recently he was selected to participate in a national study investigating new Cohesive Gel Silicone breast implants. Sixty of his Austin patients are receiving these new implants as part of their breast augmentation surgery, and Dr. Gorman and his staff will track their progress over a ten-year period.
